Calling out this crap. No way it'll be that expensive, it just doesn't make sense from a marketing standpoint if Sony's price is to be believed.

That's it, fuck you Microsoft. I stick to my Controllers. After all, it sounds too gimmicky to me and no awesome game is actually showcasing it's true potential.

With that price I buy a 360 Elite + Four actually GOOD games + 2 controllers. Have fun!

There's only one interactive motion I do in front of the TV, and it doesn't require Natal and has nothing to do with video games.......well, except for that one time for Princess Toadstool....

Ha, good luck Microsoft. You've sold turds with ribbons before, but you won't manage at that price.

Damn, I was honestly going to buy it straight away for £50, but not £150. I expect that they will just replace the $ with a £, screwing English people as per usual :p

Is $150 really that much? Considering that a controller sells for $50 or $60, and regular games sell for $60 or $70, $150 isn't surprising. Anybody who was seriously expecting it to be $50 at launch needs to have his or her head examined.

I just bought one at best buy for 40$, It usually goes for around 60$. I am a smart consumer. :p

If true, then Natal is going to bomb so incredibly badly Microsoft wouldn't know what hit it.

Look, I have a 360, and I'm not gonna buy something that'll turn my 360 into a Wii, I already have the Mii 360 avatars.

DVD Re-winders are so 5 years ago, Blu-Ray re-winders is where it's at.


On topic, does anyone even care about Natal or PS Move?

I wouldn't use it if it were free.

They better not REQUIRE this for anything.

At that price it would make sense to buy an arcade unit and sell it new on Ebay for more than $150.

Wow, you could buy like three current gen. games, like five last gen, and even a console or two to go with that.

Eh, enough of my fanboyism, I'm not buying it anyway.

Know what characterizes casual gamers? An unwillingness to spend $150+ to play Flash games.

This thing's a disaster waiting to happen.
